Stimulation - Poem by Della Perry

The children in class are quite impressed by the fact that I write poems
They don't give two hoots that they aren't perfect
Or '100 Best Loved Poems' material
They just enjoy to read them
Not caring about similes, punctuation, metaphors or alliteration one dot!
Although can't say that for the teacher!
I get quite a buzz from their smiles, laughter and eagerness to share them
But the feeling is fantastic, when they return the next day with their poems
Faces lit up with pride
The togetherness is unimaginable, the pride I feel
A family of young bards
Who will be so much better than this amateur poet could ever aspire to be,
Acting out their poems like Shakespeare
Smiles, enjoyment, eyes lit up with fire.
We make a fuss, give lots of praise
Give their poems pride of place in our library corner.
You see, even an amateur poet can use the power of words
To inspire those that can be better than ourselves.
